Tube feeding can be a healthy decision for individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are not able to achieve robust nutrition by eating alone. The decision to use tube feeding is never easy. Lurie Children's has developed a video series to help children and adults with CF, and their families, make an informed decision.
Our videos showcase patients and families who have navigated this difficult decision and the health benefits that followed. Topics include:
Struggles to gain weight
Emotional reaction to the “tube feeding talk”
Benefits that go beyond weight gain
Pros and cons of tube feeding
